"Your Holiday Directory"
  Search Engine Information!
This section is made in honor of all National Career Holidays!

Definition of a Search Engine: wikipedia
"A Web search engine is a tool designed to search for information on the World Wide Web. The search results are usually presented in a list and are commonly called hits. The information may consist of web pages, images, information and other types of files. Some search engines also mine data available in newsbooks, databases, or open directories. Unlike Web directories, which are maintained by human editors, search engines operate algorithmically or are a mixture of algorithmic and human input."

What is Search Engine Submission? 
Search engine submission, or registration, refers to getting your site listed with search engines. Getting listed does not necessarily mean you will rank well for particular words or phrases, it simply means the search engines have been notified your pages exist. You must be registered to appear at all. Getting listed in major directories is important because their listings are seen by many people. 85-90% of web site traffic is generated by people who go to search engines and directories.

Listed below are some of the most popular Search Engines on the Internet. Many are FREE to Submit to and you can do it right now!. Keep in mind that Search Engines don't like you to Submit more than about once a month. If you try and submit multiple time during the same month, it can go against you and you many not be listed at all.

This page has been made for Information purposed only. But if it would make it easier for you, feel free to come back to this page each month and use it as a guide to Submit Your Site.
Personally we pick the 22nd of each month to submit our own site.

Now there is such a thing as Submission Services too. They cost money of course but we have listed some of them below as well. Learn what they have to say. If your financially able, it will be worth learning how their submissions work.

Search Engine Positioning
Statistics prove that unless a web site appears in the top 30-40 listings for a keyword in a search, your audience will not find you when looking for sites based on that particular keyword. Terms such as search engine ranking, search engine placement, or search engine positioning refer to achieving a high ranking for a keyword or term.

How Web search engines work; wikipedia

A search engine operates, in the following order:
  1. Web crawling
  2. Indexing
  3. Searching

"Web search engines work by storing information about many web pages, which they retrieve from the WWW itself. These pages are retrieved by a Web crawler (sometimes also known as a spider) — an automated Web browser which follows every link it sees. Exclusions can be made by the use of robots.txt. The contents of each page are then analyzed to determine how it should be indexed (for example, words are extracted from the titles, headings, or special fields called meta tags). Data about web pages are stored in an index database for use in later queries. Some search engines, such as Google, store all or part of the source page (referred to as a cache) as well as information about the web pages, whereas others, such as AltaVista, store every word of every page they find. This cached page always holds the actual search text since it is the one that was actually indexed, so it can be very useful when the content of the current page has been updated and the search terms are no longer in it. This problem might be considered to be a mild form of linkrot, and Google's handling of it increases usability by satisfying user expectations that the search terms will be on the returned webpage. This satisfies the principle of least astonishment since the user normally expects the search terms to be on the returned pages. Increased search relevance makes these cached pages very useful, even beyond the fact that they may contain data that may no longer be available elsewhere."

"When a user enters a query into a search engine (typically by using key words), the engine examines its index and provides a listing of best-matching web pages according to its criteria, usually with a short summary containing the document's title and sometimes parts of the text. Most search engines support the use of the boolean operators AND, OR and NOT to further specify the search query. Some search engines provide an advanced feature called proximity search which allows users to define the distance between keywords."

"The usefulness of a search engine depends on the relevance of the result set it gives back. While there may be millions of webpages that include a particular word or phrase, some pages may be more relevant, popular, or authoritative than others. Most search engines employ methods to rank the results to provide the "best" results first. How a search engine decides which pages are the best matches, and what order the results should be shown in, varies widely from one engine to another. The methods also change over time as Internet usage changes and new techniques evolve."

"Most Web search engines are commercial ventures supported by advertising revenue and, as a result, some employ the practice of allowing advertisers to pay money to have their listings ranked higher in search results. Those search engines which do not accept money for their search engine results make money by running search related ads alongside the regular search engine results. The search engines make money every time someone clicks on one of these ads.

"Revenue in the web search portals industry is projected to grow in 2008 by 13.4 percent, with broadband connections expected to rise by 15.1 percent. Between 2008 and 2012, industry revenue is projected to rise by 56 percent as Internet penetration still has some way to go to reach full saturation in American households. Furthermore, broadband services are projected to account for an ever increasing share of domestic Internet users, rising to 118.7 million by 2012, with an increasing share accounted for by fiber-optic and high speed cable lines."
